And for those in engineering departments, you can also apply to the City & Guilds College Association's charitable trust, the OC Trust.

I believe the RCSA has something similar if someone from the RCSU would like to pop up and post details.

Damm Ashley! You've given away my little secret - hardly anyone applies to the OC Trust!

I applied for Access to Learning Fund because by now (end of April) I ran out of my savings. I have no idea how I will pay my rent and food from next week. My application was rejected this week, the Finance Office simply says that I should have gone work.

Does anyone know where I could make an appeal against the decision of the university? Which authority/law firm deals with this kind of complaints? Please write me if you have any idea to . Thanks, Steve.
